Blogtember September 3rd Day 1 – Who am I?

Standard

Tuesday, Sept. 3: Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.

I am a middle child and the only daughter. (Which also makes me the only niece and only granddaughter on one side.) I have an older brother and a younger one. We grew up in a small town in the middle of England. Surrounded by countryside, memories of walking up hills that seemed like mountains to my young legs. I think the factors that made me (apart from the obvious) are events, lots happened in my childhood. When I think about it some of the events were down to me. I created them and the result – cause and effect.

The first one I don’t even remember but it is a demonstration of my strength, stubbornness and darker side – I held my breath as a child, because I couldn’t get my own way. My mum called for an ambulance as I had passed out. I was fine, but she was told she had a highly wilful child (I wasn’t even a toddler) and the WORST thing she could do was give into me. In hindsight my childhood may have been easier if I hadn’t revealed my hand so soon! 😉

We learn a lot from our parents, I guess my mother helped mould the woman I am today. She is strong.

I am one of those people who aims and fires but doesn’t always get the target so I have to work for it and if I really want it, I will get it in the end. Once you have the success you tend to forget about the hardship you confronted along the way.

I am headstrong and have plenty of good role models in my life!

I have also learnt the importance of surrounding yourself with people who bring out the best in you and to turn to friends and family in times of need.

  1. I am a middle child and was brought up in the south of England. I am now living about 15 miles from where I was born. in 2006-2009 I was living less than a miles from where I was born. I popped out in the middle of the year, and the hospital was pulled down at the end of that same year.

    I never did anything like hold my breath until I passed out. Definitely a skill you got there though 🙂

    • I was just replying to this when I lost the message – it is past my bedtime!
      I was brought up in my hometown, moved a fortnight after my 18th, came back as a brief stop over in 2002. I have spent the past 8 years living back in the county between 7 – 20 miles away from home.
      Now I seemed to have moved back to my hometown, there are worse places! I live a few miles away from my old family home!

      Great way to share more about ourselves.

      • Way past my bedtime too lol. I moved up to the middle of England in 2010 but only stayed there for nine months before moving to where I am now.

        Kept the kids entertained though lol.

        Good night 🙂
